Imbibe Safely on St. Patrick’s Day

If you plan to indulge in a prolonged #pub crawl or toast on St. Patrick’s Day, do so wisely: Start with a meal that’s rich in carbs and protein, Bon Appetit says. For example, a corned beef hash or a classic #Irish breakfast with, sausage, eggs, beans and tea will protect a sensitive stomach and slow the absorption of alcohol. Take a multivitamin to head off nutrient depletion, and match any Guinesses consumed ounce-for-ounce with still water to maintain hydration. Don’t be afraid to fuel up with snacks as the day wears on, or just bow out when you know you’ve had enough — and never mix drinking and driving. Slainte! #StPatricksDay
